Melbourne artists Sean Peoples and Veronica Kent, aka The Telepathy Project, discuss their first self-published artist book with artist Dr Meredith Turnbull. Capturing the past 10 years of their work together, the publication seeks to mirror their ongoing concerns with alternative ways of producing and communicating collaborative knowledge.
Telepathy and dreams serve as extended metaphors and working method through which Kent and Peoples explore alternate ways of being, communicating and collaborating, and act as the premise for the setting up of encounters that test and provoke such relationships. Their projects have been presented in private and public galleries and festivals in Australia, USA, Germany, Spain, France and India, taking forms such as; musicals, dream recitals, remote international drawing projects, epic sleepovers, telepathically curated exhibitions, collaborative paintings and institutional interventions.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
